LOW-ENERGY
SCREW.

The wood building screw
with innovative Stairs
thread technology.

STATE CONSULTING PRIZE 2017

On Thursday evening, the Austrian Economy Ministry has for the 23rd time awarded its Consulting - Consulting Engineering State Prize.

This year, the award went to the project TENZ – The low-energy wood screw / the professional wood screw with the innovate stairs thread technology. The jury justified its decision by honouring the successful challenge of “reinventing” a technology as established as the screw. “Ingeniously simple – simply ingenious: The low-energy screw ‘developed in Austria’ shows that it is possible to create an internationally leading innovation even in a seemingly simple field, to open up new markets and to contribute to environmental protection and occupational safety,” the jury stated.

TENZ WINS

the Austrian Economy Ministry’s State Prize 2017.

The gala was opened by Mr Stefan Dörfler,
the Head of the Board of Erste Bank.

In the end, TENZ managed to best a wide range of other participants
and impressed the jury with its ingenious Stairs thread technology.

Technology
Original
5

Noticeably less stress and twisting
of the wrist.

1

Lower thermal
stress increases
the application equipment’s
service life.

2

TENZ Stairs reduces friction along the thread by minimising the contact area between the wood and the screw.

3

Wood fibres are displaced so the screw can optimally bond with the wood.

4

Maximum battery performance utilisation when using cordless screwdrivers.

Modified

TECHNOLOGY
WITHOUT
COMPROMISE.

  • Reduced friction along the thread
  • Significantly reduces the screwing resistance
  • Longer tool life and increased application equipment service life
  • Lower screwing effort and power demand increases work safety and motivation

We aim at achieving better performance with every screw and providing the possibility to create projects in an entirely new way from the ground up.

LOWER SCREWING TORQUE

The screw’s oscillating movement
during screwing minimises friction
and facilitates work through minimal effort and power demand.

TIMBER CONSTRUCTION

TENZ® joins wood
and wood-based materials.

FULL POWER – ALL THE WAY TO THE END

Through low screwing torque,
TENZ utilises your cordless
screwdriver’s entire battery
performance.

ONE BATTERY – HIGHER PERFORMANCE

Now, you can place more screws
with one battery charge than
ever before – an entirely new
starting point for your projects.

"This is a timber construction screw that specifically relies on its thread which makes for an out-of-the-box technology that is noticeably different in its use.”

Johannes Sudy
Planner und Project Manager

"When placing the first screw, you may not notice much of a difference but you will when placing the hundredth and that includes differences in the utilisation capacity of existing equipment.”

DI. Manfred Riedler
Architect and Civil Engineer

"When one wants to implement innovative projects using wood, a natural, living material, one needs correspondingly perfect screws to achieve design goals.”
